I am a new user of majordomo: just finished installing ver 1.93 on 
a Sparc 1+ running Sun-OS 4.1.  I have perl 4.036.

The installation went fine, and I made up a mock list called "foxies".
When I send mail to "foxies", all the users in that list receive it.
Different users at the same address where "foxies" resides (that is,
@journal.math.indiana.edu) can subscribe by writing, as usual,

subscribe foxies

However, if I position myself in another machine, and send a message
to majordomo@journal.math.indiana.edu requesting

subscribe foxies

I get the following message:

Moreover, when I do

majordomo... aliased to  "|/u5/Majordomo/majordomo-1.93/wrapper majordomo"

I have compiled and recompiled majordomo several times.  Suspecting
something with wrapper, I did a strings on it, which gave me this:

$Header: /sources/cvsrepos/majordomo/wrapper.c,v 1.1.1.1.8.2 1995/01/07 17:28:00 rouilj Exp $
HOME=/u5/Majordomo/majordomo-1.93
PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/ucb
SHELL=/bin/csh
MAJORDOMO_CF=/u5/Majordomo/majordomo-1.93/majordomo.cf
USAGE: %s program [<arg> ...]
%s: error: insecure usage
/u5/Majordomo/majordomo-1.93
%s: error: malloc failed
%s/%s
/u5/Majordomo/majordomo-1.93
USER=
LOGNAME=
%s: error: recompile with POSIX flags.

I did not like the looks of it, so, knowing that I had a more complete
C library if I used gcc, I changed Makefile to run gcc instead of cc.
The new wrapper gives, under strings, the following:

$Header: /sources/cvsrepos/majordomo/wrapper.c,v 1.1.1.1.8.2 1995/01/07 17:28:00 rouilj Exp $

which seems to me to indicate no compilation errors.  Can anybody give
me a clue?  Many thanks, elena
